Outward Bound, founded by educator Kurt Hahn, is a non-profit educational organization and expedition school that serves people of all ages and backgrounds through challenging learning expeditions that inspire self-discovery, both in and out of the classroom. With a national network of regional Schools and hundreds of courses in wilderness settings and urban environments, Outward Bound has helped people discover strength of character, an ability to lead and a desire to serve for over 50 years.
Outward Bound delivers programs using unfamiliar settings as a way for students to experience adventure and challenge in a way that helps participants discover that they can do more than they thought possible. Outward Bound helps individuals and teams discover strength of character and an aptitude for leadership needed to serve others in their community and care for the world around them. Today, Outward Bound serves 70,000 students and teachers annually, many of whom receive scholarship support, and has a nationwide community of more than 1 million people.
